Assisting Lenders in Foreclosure Actions

As a bank financial institution, private lender or asset management group – lending money to a borrower means taking a certain amount of risk. The desire, of course, is that everything will progress smoothly: the borrower will make timely payments and you will profit from the interest that accrues. Unfortunately, however, that is not always what happens. As the lender, you may have to pursue foreclosure actions if the borrower fails to make mortgage payments to you as per your agreement.

If you are required to move forward with this action, it is absolutely essential that you properly execute your foreclosure. Improperly executing a foreclosure can mean breaking laws you don’t even realize you’re breaking.

Why You Need to Partner with an Experienced Lawyer

Lenders should partner with an experienced real estate lawyer to ensure that they comply with state-, federal-, and industry-level regulations regarding foreclosures. If you do not comply with these regulations and proceed with a foreclosure anyway, your borrower may respond to your foreclosure lawsuit with a lawsuit of their own.

An experienced lawyer can help you with the following:

  • Deciding between judicial and non-judicial foreclosure
  • Utilizing Florida’s expedited foreclosure process
  • Ensuring that your promissory note allows you to be foreclosing on the home
  • Acquiring a lost note affidavit if the promissory note is missing
  • Avoiding circumstances that would make foreclosure impossible
  • Complying with the Florida Fair Foreclosure Act
  • Seeking deficiency judgments
